Blocking callers for solicitation

< All Topics

An advertisement over the telephone is known as a telephone solicitation. The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls or block callers for solicitation.

Overview of the National Do Not Call Registry

Companies can call you if you’ve recently done business with them, or if you’ve given them written permission to call. But if you ask them not to call you, they have to stop. Be sure to write down the date you asked them to stop.

The National Do Not Call Registry was created to stop unwanted sales calls. It’s free to register your home or cell phone number.

The Registry is a list that tells telemarketers what numbers not to call.

Read about blocking unwanted calls to find out what to do about them. If you answer one of these calls, hang up and report the call to the FTC.

Blocking callers for solicitation

  • In aNinja, you can block a phone number and forbid it from calling you.
  • To block the solicitation callers, you can register your home or mobile phone for free.
  • Registrations on the National Do Not Call Registry do not expire. So, if you have previously registered your number, there is no need to register again.
  • After you register, other types of organizations may still call you, such as charities, political groups, debt collectors, and surveys. To learn more, read the FAQs.
  • If you’ve already added your phone number to the Do Not Call Registry and are still getting a lot of unwanted calls, odds are the calls are from scammers.
  • If you received an unwanted call after your number was on the National Registry for 31 days, report it to the FTC.
